Just prepare yourself for some seriously tasty and sophisticated tobacco! KNIFE FIGHT ‘22 Special Edition is extremely smooth and uber-rich. BUT it's so complex and loaded with layers upon layers of flavor...that it's a mouthwatering stab-in-the-neck (in the best way possible!)
But word of warning...KNIFE FIGHT ‘22 Special Edition is a cigar for the seasoned cigar smoker! It's loaded with so much phenomenally aged tobacco...that the novice smoker is gonna be punching way above their weight-class.
Seriously—the tobaccos featured this cigar are absolutely incredible! (I know we always “nerd out” on the tobaccos, but our excitement for the cigars we create is kinda indescribable!)
KNIFE FIGHT ‘22 Special Edition is a full-bodied, medium-strength 6x50 toro wrapped in a gorgeous 11-year-aged Criollo 98 leaf. Binder and filler tobaccos will remain secret...but all tobaccos are between 9-14 years aged!
First light is awe-inspiring! Huge waves of milk chocolate and aged leather instantly wash over the palate. Immediately following, rich flavors of caramel, heavy cream, and roasted coffee beans appear. The finish is long adding vanilla bean and dark brown sugar. Retrohale is adds a warming cinnamon burn.
As it progresses, cocoa and leather come to the fore. Hints of black walnut and red oak. The finish continues to impress--very clean with hints of clove and spice.
Halfway, maple wood, white pepper, and Scotch whiskey emerge. The finish brings waves of black licorice, toasted marshmallow, and sweet tea. The age of tobacco really starts to be tasted. It's a mature, refined flavor that only comes from extra aging. So delicious that it's hard to describe!
The last third everything crescendos! Creamy espresso, dark leather, and cinnamon stick become pronounced. Balanced perfectly by flavors of toffee, pie crush, and cashew. It’s absolutely unbelievable down to the nub!
